Slide Amanda helped us with wedding planning and design. Amanda is organized, responsible, professional and experienced.
I started to prepare for my wedding ceremony and reception three months ahead of my wedding day, with the doubt that why people
usually spend a year on that, until I experienced one of the busiest and stressful periods in my life. Having Amanda being my wedding planner
is the major reason for getting things done in that extremely tight schedule. All the venders recommended by Amanda
are very professional, talented and have great passion for their work. I want to thank Amanda,

Slide Amanda is the best in Central Illinois. She made my wife's dream come true.
If you have a little or big dream, you're in the right hand. Great price, high quality, and professionalism!
She can work with anybody with any budget.

Slide Amanda was extremely professional and helpful, and was “worth her weight in gold” throughout the whole process. She helped us formulate
our design, provided fun and fresh ideas, and assisted us greatly in the planning despite my busy schedule and lack of knowledge.
Her product was helpful in understanding the language and concepts in the wedding industry.
Amanda has years of professional experience in this industry.
She was SO fun to work with, always took everything with a smile, and expertly handled our changing decisions.

Slide After being engaged for 9 months in the middle of a pandemic, my husband and I decided that we were ready to be married,
even if it meant our big day would look different than we once imagined. With COVID restrictions limiting our guest list, we decided to plan
a 35 person "micro-wedding" in 8 weeks. We could have never done it with out Amanda's help. I thought planning a wedding
in 8 weeks was a stretch, but Amanda didn't. She had in under control from the moment we decided to move forward.
She provided details for multiple vendors in each wedding category, making it easy to narrow down details and find vendors that fit our vision.
On the day of our wedding, Amanda organized every detail and worked throughout the entire party to ensure the day was seamless.
I cannot say enough good things about her character & professionalism.

Slide Amanda was absolutely essential for not only helping us plan our wedding but also for the
day of the wedding. She made everything go so smoothly and seamlessly. I honestly can’t even imagine attempting
to plan a wedding without her. She executed our Pinterest board so perfectly - it was a dream come true.
Amanda is extremely knowledgable in regards to every single aspect of wedding planning. We relied on her for a lot which made the
process so much more enjoyable for us. We definitely recommend Amanda’s wedding and party planning services. 10/10 stars!!!
Thank you so much, Amanda.

Slide 5 stars is not enough. Our wedding was 5/29 and Amanda went above and beyond, I will never be able to thank her enough.
When I first got engaged, I did not want a wedding planner. I was so wrong. She is the best money I spent, by far. Our meetings were always
fun, and seeing it all come together on our big day was a dream come true. I didn't feel stressed even once on Saturday.
Amanda asked me many times "Do you need anything? Are you good?" I will recommend her to everyone I know who has a wedding to plan.
Thank you so much, Amanda! 🙂

Slide "We have had the pleasure of working with Amanda recently and noticed that she is passionate about styling and planning
and goes above and beyond for her clients. She is willing to jump in and help other vendors also which is rare.
She recently moved to our area from the west coast.
We predict that she is going to be a smashing success and great service to the couples here in our area!!"

Slide "Kari and Dylan were married in Chicago and it was so fun to work on their stationery. Part of the fun was working agin with planner
extraordinaire Amanda! She is full of ideas and options and creativity. If you need a planner (and if you are getting married,
you DO!), give her a call. You won't be disappointed, I promise.
I love her seamless design from invitations to reception is when working with a planner like Amanda- someone who
clearly loves the details and design process. Look closely on the invitation, and you'll see the diamond pattern blind letterpress
which is a nod to the diamond pattern they choose for the reception."
